Abu Huraira (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu) reported: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying: When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased). [Sahih Muslim – Book 13 – Hadith 4005]

Upcoming Events

Sisters Halaqa

Saturday, May 9, 2015. This months topic is Hijrah(proofs,realities and benefits) presented by Sr. Safiyyah Yousif. We are requesting for our dear noble sisters to come out and spend time and hear Safiyyah's experience as an American muslimah who lived in Sudan for 18 years. In Sha Allah, she will be leaving in June to make her final hijrah. Safiyyah will give her lecture at 2pm to 3pm and we'll have a luncheon for her and her daughter from 3pm to 4pm and is a potluck affair. We pray that you can join us on Saturday to spend time with Safiyyah because she is going to miss her American sisters. Look forward to the pleasure of your company.
